This past Friday, Sodexo and Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), took home the prestigious EuroFM Awards in the “Partners Across Borders” category. The award honors excellence in facilities management services across Europe.

Since 2004, Sodexo and P&G have worked together to improve plant management within several European manufacturing sites. Recognizing the success of that venture, the partnership has been extended to North and South America and Asia, totaling around 50 sites.

In choosing a winner, the EuroFM selection committee judged on the basis of the partnership between a corporate client and service provider, the achievement of the partnership towards agreed goals, and the innovation introduced to deliver facilities management consistently and effectively.

Following a site visit organized as part of the evaluation process, one judge commented:
“Not only was the relationship working well at all levels in the partnership, but you could see that P&G had learnt they could rely on their Sodexo counterpart and this now meant that Sodexo were being asked to provide support in the production process – a very good sign of a growing relationship.”

Several representatives from Sodexo and P&G attended the awards ceremony held during the European Facilities Management Conference in Madrid on June 1-2.
